ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Munyon is a singer songwriter, born August 19th, 1951, in Newport, Rhode Island to Chet and Lola Mae Munyon, the last of five children. His Dad was a NASA Engineer and his Mom was a Preacher's daughter. David has been playing Music since he was 12 years old. He played for tips and meals for 15 years in Nashville, Tennessee and California and Florida while his wife Dixie worked as a waitress, and they , along with The Famous Producer Greg Humphrey and J.D. Hicks and Bruce Hicks recorded their first CD, Titled: Code Name :Jumper, in 1990. This CD has some great musicians on it, to include Warren Haynes, Matt Rollings, Leland Sklar, Sneaky Pete, Al Perkins and Anthony Crawford. The CD was promoted in Europe by Glitterhouse Records, and re-mixed and mastered by Gunter Pauler and people seemed to like the CD, and so, 5 more CD's were developed and produced by Glitterhouse and Stockfisch Records, some "Solo Acoustic" and some with Great European Musicians to include Chris Jones, and several of the best musicians on The Planet, from England and Germany and India , to include, "The very gifted...Mike Silver ". David has Toured Europe, always playing Solo Acoustic from 1992 -1998 , with his wife"Dixie Blue" , Ms. S.P. Standley-Munyon and they have many fans and friends. David Munyon is a "topical writer" much like many of the Folk Legends and Roots Artists of todays Acoustic Tradition. David is a Writer, Performer, Painter, Artist, Poet, and Farmer. He humbly promotes the book "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda. David has songs that are performed by Eric Burdon, Rick Travino and Jennifer Warnes and has worked Shows with Bill Monroe, Suzanne Vega, Richie Havens, THE BAND, The Drifters and the truely talented Terry Lee Hale, Joseph Parsons, Danial Putnam Green, Warren Haynes, Gene Gillespie and many others. " David Munyon songs are Great!", says Rolling Stone Magazine in Germany. David says "I just ask God, to help me write a good song for the folks, and I just hold the guitar and pencil" and says, I'm very grateful for everything, my best friends work at Glitterhouse Records and Stockfisch Records, from Germany, and we are very blessed to know Gunter Pauler. We are hopeful that our songs may, in some way, bring happiness and comfort to people in this World and maybe if we all work together we can stop some of the pollution in the air, and maybe clean up the Rivers and Streams and The Oceans, and spread some love and harmony... and promote Peace". David adds, "Prayer is a Powerful Thing, years ago, I was home-less ...and just look what people's prayers have done for me...my wife Dixie's prayers and my friends and family's prayers, all that I have today... from the generosity of my friends in Germany and Italy and Holland and Europe and The U.S.A and Canada, and France and Spain and Ireland... I still ask everyone to pray for me". "What is my message"? "I don't know , says David Munyon perhaps Love and Forgivness, Forgivness for everyone ... up to 77 times a day, and Love, and good coffee, and Peace". David is managed, on various days, by Greg Humphrey in Nashville and Ms. Georgina Moore in Los Angeles, and very much managed by his wife Dixie Blue. David and Dixie live in a old trailer that used to belong to Hank Williams Sr., at "Om Field" in Midland City, Alabama. David is currently living & playing in Germany and has just released (19/08/06) his new solo/acoustic album, "Song for Danko" on his own Mobile Home Records "That's about all there is to say about David Munyon" Forrest Gump

What a wonderful CD! Being a Rick Danko fan, I couldn't resist purchasing this CD when I saw it. I am very glad I did! Song For Danko is a lovely tribute to a wonderful artist but is by no means the only song on this CD that touched me. Although each song is special in it's own way, World Love, Vina's Boy and I Will Find You are also standouts. David Munyon sings and plays his songs with a warmth and intimacy that's spellbinding!

"Uncut" Magazine (UK)

Lost troubador of America's wounded soul emerges in Abbey Road
A life of destitution, drink and shattered 60's dreams has informed Munyon's fitful but luminous career, independent record producer Roger Morrish brought him into the studio favoured by his childhood heroes the Beatles this summer and, with his star bright and lucid acoustic the only accompaniment, Munyon's elemental Alabama blues poured forth. Munyon's dramas of the heart recall Dylan, Cohen and Townes Van Zandt, but the huskied honey voice and visions of redemption are inimitable. An undiscovered native American treasure, Munyon turns Wounded Knee balladry, Deep Blues and pitch-dark country into aural gold. GAVIN MARTIN

Enzonen

Again a wonderfull collection of songs
The cd contains a beautiful set of intense songs, all centered around the voice and the guitar of David Munyon. You can feel the inspiration of the famous Beatles Studio where he made this record.

David’s newest CD "Song for Danko", once more recorded Solo/Acoustic for his own label Mobile Home Records, is again the work from a real musical-genius. The CD and the title song is dedicated to Rick Danko from "The Band" who sadly died in 1999. "Buy me a ticket to London" comes true: On 11th July 2006 David recorded this fine sounding album with his friend and producer Roger Morrish at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London/UK. Guided by the spirit of George, John, Paul and Ringo, twelve wonderful tracks came out of David’s guitar and make this one to something very special – each song is different and each one is a pearl! He sings with a deep, warm and intense voice songs about dreams, friends, love and peace. Some he did in a very electrifying, bluesy way ("Hare Krishna Blues", "Keep it rockin’") and some in that indescribable style that gives me always the cosy creeps ("Sailor’s Song", "Vina’s Boy"). The touching song "Broken robot" is David’s friendly homage to all the people worldwide who are handicapped. "I will find you" and "I am this old guitar" are both beautiful songs he had written together in Germany with the German musicians and Singer/Songwriter buddies Matthias Biber Herrmann and Wolfgang Malende. "Word love" sung with the British artist Roy Bowden closes the album with David’s desirable message and touring-topic. Sir Paul Mc Cartney and a poster of Sgt. Pepper’s at his home inspired him to write this fine, world-needed song. All in all a remarkable album, worth to buy, that really deserves big international attention and success!

Song for Danko
Eccentric artist, gritty soulful voice and steady guitar playing. Lovely tunes, especially Song for Danko, Buy Me a Ticket to London, and Sailor's Song # 327. A treat for tired ears!
